Hmm, never heard of Element TV before... I suggest calling the manufacturer and letting them know that this is happening, it sounds like the unit is damaged or faulty in a way that trips the breakers, loose wiring, broken wiring, even a bad fuse can do this. As long as you haven't opened the unit, the warranty should apply and they should help you with the problem.

HOW do I get my element lcd tv 32inch flx3711b to work with my toshiba satellite C75D A7370 windows 8.1 via hdmi cable. The cable works on my tv in kitchen however, on the Element TV no picture shows.

a couple of things. on the computer lower the res to 16 bit. 800 x 600. 60 hz. on the tv look for input and change it. or look for video on the remote control. also look in the owners manual if you have it. also since you have a blank screen try moving the mouse off the screen and to the right and to the left. you may have it set to extended instead of copy.

What would cause the sound on a lcd hdtv 32 inch flat screen tv to just stop?

What other device are you connecting to your tv and how are you connecting it?

If you connect via a single HDMI cable that may be causing your audio problem. Some Tv and STB have handshacking issues which can knock out audio and/or video. The only solution would be to replace the HDMI cable or switch to composite cables.

Good luck!

Flashing red ''M'' all over Screen

As you have only recently purchased the TV and it is misbehaving right in the begining, then I suggest that you return and replace it with another piece. Or another brand if possible.
